Alright, y'all — I'm back on the pop tart train. All aboard! And they just keep getting more ridiculous than the next. There's nothing better than combining two insanely sugary 90s snack foods into one — let's call it a "pastry" — that we will somehow pass off as a breakfast food.
Is there a person that didn't have a love affair with Circus Animal cookies as a child? They're probably banned in Europe for being too appealing to children and simultaneously being terrible for you, like flavored cigarettes. But how can you hate a neon pink animal-shaped cracker covered in plasticky frosting and doused with colorful sprinkles? You can't. You can't hate it.
So, naturally, I made Circus Animal pop tarts, because I can, that's why. I don't turn down an opportunity to make a pink carb full of sprinkles when it pops into my brain. And now that you've seen this, you can't look away, like a circus clown car accident, and you're going to want to make them, too. My work here is done.
